Hawaii.  What do you think of when you hear that word?  Does it reflect what your culture thinks?  During a fruitful bout of brilliance, Hyperboloid Records released 20 Russian artists’ interpretations of the youngest and surfiest state in the U.S.  A small subculture of Russian DJs ranging from downtempo to dubstep, all giving us their own personal artistic visions?  This might be one of the coolest ideas I’ve seen on vinyl in quite some time.  Bought it immediately.  Stuff like this doesn’t come around very often.  Lapti’s track called “Hawaiian” is my favorite.

As of now, there are 16 of these left.

The Details

#INTERNETGHETTO #RUSSIA is a manifestation of online culture using the means of yesterday`s technology, the unity and progression. The sound on the vinyl record could not be more elusive and constantly developing as on this compilation released by Hyperboloid Records. By going IRL we permanently install the moment on your hard drive or, in this case, on your record shelf. It is something to touch, turn over and clean from the dust of the real world but it contains the ever evolving sonar and visual experience of young Russia, confined within the borders of the Internet. Remember, when the Internet used to be free? We do and even though the world is even further away from the unity as before, we are united in this thing. Worldwide, but created in the russian internet by the russian internet.

#INTERNETGHETTO #RUSSIA is a product of efforts of already well known producers like Pixelord, 813, DZA, Lapti and upcoming (many of them already happening) like Gillepsy, BWWWOYS, Fisky. This compilation is a two-parter, one comes as a green vinyl release, the other part is a cassette with 20 tracks defining the sound of now and the future to come soon enough. This is the project in the making, the first installment.
